Despite the fact that it costs a small fortune I do quite enjoy it as it means that a) we get a small amount of respite from boy vs. teen war at home and b) DS2 gets to try lots of new outdoorsy things, increase his confidence and generally have a bit of fun with his friends. Its a win/win situation really.
That is apart from the packing. Which always gets left to me. Urgh.
So, armed with my packing list I spent most of yesterday gathering stuff together, trying to remember where I'd put the torch (the one that we'd bought specifically for this trip) and working out if I could get away with not ironing
Sooo, picture the scene. I've worked out where everything is, started packing it into the case and yet the list seems endless. The more I pack, the more I remember that we haven't got this or that, can he do without it? Will he be able to even move the case once its packed?
WILL I BE ABLE TO CLOSE THE CASE?
|Endless list of "stuff"|
|Will it Fit?|
|Good job I had a "helper"|
I may have* instructed her to do this. After all, what's the point of having small children if you can't use them to weigh down a suitcase every now and then?
